Both the online proctored testing (OPT) and center-based testing #PMPexams will now have a built-in 10-minute break. PMI added the break to ensure candidates could leave the room to use the restroom or address other needs during the four-hour exam. Here’s how it works:
The exam is now divided into two parts. Once candidates complete the first part of the exam, review their answers, and submit it, their break starts.
The break is not mandatory. Candidates can break for up to 10 minutes, or they can choose to continue to the second part of the exam immediately after submitting the first part.
During the break, they can leave the room, but once the break begins, they CANNOT revisit questions from the first part of the exam.
Candidates must keep track of their break. If they do not return at the end of the maximum 10 minutes, the exam session will be terminated.
At the end of the 10-minute break, candidates will be checked in by their proctor and will finish the second and final part of the exam.
